    Jeep Jk Headlights

    Hello everyone,

    I am in the market for a new set of headlights for my Jk. I posted a while back about LED or HID conversion bulbs and was told to get entire replacements. Since then, the Truck Lites have caught my eye and Im about ready to pull the trigger on a set. Any one have experience with them? Any comparison to the JW speaker? How are they overall?

    Overall just looking for input from those who have them. Would rather put a little extra money in and buy the JW speaker if its superior.

    Thanks again,
    Spencer

    I had the Trucklights and liked them a lot. Never had any problems. Some owners in very cold climates complain of snow builing up because they are not hot like the stock lights. They make heated Trucklights but my bet is you won't have that problem in Florida.

    I can't comment on the JW's. I don't have any experience with them.

    I have Trucklites and I love them. Very bright compared to stock but then again you could wipe a firefly's guts on the stock lens and it would be brighter than what jeep installs from the factory.

    Serious brightness though for real. I'm amazed at how much I was missing driving at night with stock lights. I can see shoulder to shoulder without the brights on and I never feel like I'm over-driving my headlights at highway speeds. Used them on the trail in dim daylight conditions in overgrowth on a forest trail and at night in Uwharrie. They performed great and lit the trail like daylight.

    I've had mine for just about a year. I did have an issue with them, though I'm not certain if the temperature was any cause to the issue. They were fine when installed but one lens got dimmer this winter. I tried re-installing and re-connecting the harness but it never came back to full bright. I contacted them and sent pics of the faulty light. Without question, they sent me a brand new pair with an email that had heir UPS account number attached for return shipping. So customer service seems pretty good to me.

    I do not have the heated version but I can say that I didn't think I was missing anything by them being plain. I did not experience icing over and I did drive in some pretty good winter weather this year.

    Overall I'm extremely happy with my choice and I would easily recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade from stock.

    I've had both TL and JW on my Jeep. The JW are superior in my opinion. Light pattern is more even and better spread. They appear a little brighter because of that.

    I should mention I only bought them because they were the same price as the TL at the time (Black Friday deal). The price premium is not worth the (admittedly) subjective improvement. The wife was coveting my trucklites so I gave them to her.

    I've had Truck lites and now running Vision-X, they're both as bright but I do like the pattern coverage of the Vision-X better and I use the outer ring light as a daytime light.

    I have a set of JW's I haven't installed yet, bought the new ones made specific for the JK on a super deal from Amazon, they have a built in anti-flicker adapter.

    I didn't care for the V or X pattern of the Truck lites, I've seen guys install the horizontal adjustment screws and adjust most of the x-pattern out. be sure to get the anti-flicker adapters and use dielectric grease on the connectors.

    I have non-heated TL's and they are leaps and bounds better than stock.

    Sunday night I noticed one high beam was weak. I started the claim through the vender where I bought them yesterday and received an email that the replacement shipped today. I also did have a freak AZ snowstorm incident with mine. Had to pull over every 5 miles at night to clear them. Overall, I'm happier with these than stock. I picked mine up last June before the price hike, so that was a bonus.

    Thanks for all the input. Cold weather shouldn't be an issue in south Florida. I'm curious about this x or c light pattern. Does this bother those who have the truck lites? I'm planning on replacing the fog lites too so hopefully it should overlap some of the headlight beam.

    I have the JW Speakers in mine. Got them on sale for $475. I love them, and get compliments on the constantly. The difference between stock and these is ridiculous. I havent had anything else, but I would recommend the JW to anyone.
